    Unhappy Gnome 3 and mouse losing focus


    Hey everyone,

    I installed arch linux with gnome 3. But now I have a problem with mouse losing focus. For and example if I open a terminal then the mouse works only in the terminal if I try to click on some other window(lets say a browser) then the mouse just does not work. I can switch windows with alt + tab. If I switch windows with alt+tab then the mouse only works in new window. The problem is something that mouse works only in the currently active window.

    Hope some one can help

    cheers!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    What distribution+version of Linux are you running, and what Xorg server are you using? This is, likely, an X-Windows (Xorg) issue, but some of the newest versions of Ubuntu may not be using Xorg... hence an entirely new set of system bugs.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
